Getting Bored of The Rock. Anyone else?
Let me start by saying:
I am one of the BIGGEST Rock fans. Never bashed him when he was in holywood...love his movies for the most part...TOTALLY marked out when he returned on Feb 14th...prolly spent HOURS and HOURS youtubi'ing all kinds of Rock classic moments in the weeks leading up to mania, over and over...
However. It seems as though WWE is trying to push Rock down our throat's as a "people's hero", kinda a-la-John Cena for the past 7yrs (which is exactly why people hate Cena now). In his speech on Raw last week, towards the beginning, when he first brought up "Team Bring It", he must have repeated that 15-20 times in a 1 minute time span, those words "Team Bring It". His whole "We The People say If you Smell..." and "We the people say The Millions" is kinda annoying...Rock is supposed to be Cocky as fuck, and not a bonified Boy Scout "leader of the people".
I know he's the people champ, and it's cool that he likes the fans, etc, but i just don't like the way he's portraying it. I feel as though a few more weeks/appearacnes like this, and he might end up getting the type of Heat that he got at the beginning of 2003/end 2002 when he first came back from Hollywood and people turned on him because he was "too cliche" of a babyface, and people chanted "You Sold Out" to him.
And in the Meantime...Cena...everyone hates Cena right? Yet, in the past few weeks against The Rock he's had a bid of an edge, and lo and behold i'm kinda digging it lol. I liked that he attacked The Rock first on Raw...his Promo on Raw was intense...he doesn't give a shit if the fans boo him/cheer him.
I guess what i'm saying is...if they continue to build this feud the way they are over the next few months, possibly culminating ni a Summerslam or Mania 28 match...I wouldn't be totally shocked to see Rock turning heel/Cena face at the rate this is going.
Anyone else agree? Please keep in mind this isn't a "Bashing Rock" thread...I absolutely love The Rock, i'm just saying at this rate we might be booing him soon.
